I thought it might be quite nice for you guys and gals to get to know me a bit better and when I was tagged by Hannah from Millennial Talks to do a 20 Random Facts About Me post, it seemed like the perfect idea to share a bit more of me behind the scenes. Also don’t forget to go and check out her blog, she’s a millennial blogger, like myself, and covers all things blog, lifestyle and travel related.
I love a good quiz/ questionnaire, and used to love doing the ones they featured in magazines (which doesn’t seem to happen so much anymore). So here goes with my answers… enjoy!
On Wednesday morning, I had a blood test and the nurse struggled to find a vein (mine are quite deep and I always have this issue). Anyway I ended up being used as a human pin cushion and one of the attempts was towards my actual elbow bone and was sooooo painful, I cried on the way to work because the pain after hurt so much!
Yes, I’d like to think so. I’m kind, understanding, supportive, honest and truthful, qualities I know I like in people I surround myself with.
Is that a joke 😂? Erm, you could say that, I have a tendency to be very sarcastic.
Their smile. You can normally tell how genuine a person is by the way they smile.
Hands down happy endings. I’m a sucker for a good happy ending, but I like to know all the deets so I love when they fast forward and do the whole happily married with kids thing. You cannot beat a rom-com!
I love essential oils, lime, basil and mandarin scented anything, coconut, anything vanilla or amber and my favouite is the log wood fire candles from Muji.
I went to Canada once, a long time ago, and I was still quite young, I think only around 18/19. I went for two weeks and the time difference made it awkward to call home at times.
I wouldn’t say I have any special talents, but I am a quick learner so pick things up quickly.
Cambridge in England.
Anything creative. I love cooking, photography, blogging (obvs!), working out and I love escaping with a good book.
Oh god, it changed so often and some of them were super focused. I know I got a pet rescue set when I was about 6 and decided I wanted to be a vet, until I realised that meant opening animals up and operating on them and was like hell no. Then at secondary school I wanted to be a French journalist living in southern France wandering markets on weekends (told ya it was specific). Then it changed to just a journalist. When I left school, I got a job in admin and kind of lost my way for a while. I’m still not 100% zeroed in on what I want to do but I know I love being creative and I love writing so that’s a start.
Well I’ve been to various places in France and Spain a bunch of times. I mentioned I went to Canada. I’ve also been to Portugal, Andorra (snowboarding), and Tenerife. I haven’t done a whole lot of travelling and over the next couple of years I really want to do New York and Australia.
Favourite: English, Art and languages
Worst: Math and PE – especially when it came to cross country, kill me now!
I love a good vegan, dairy free milkshake or Turmeric Latte.
I don’t have kids at the moment, but plan to in the future. We’ve gone through a few names we like but then we fall out of love with them. So at the moment we don’t have any specific names, I just know I’d like one of each at least, a boy and a girl.
Obvs Sarah’s Day – an Australian health and fitness YouTuber. I’m slightly obsessed with her and pretty much love everything she does.
I also love Krissy Cela – another health and fitness YouTuber. I get some great ideas for workouts from her.
4… I think.
This is a hard one… there’s so many. I would say generally just the family holidays we used to take in summer down in the South of France. Those two weeks there every year were amazing, I made so many friends and loved exploring the campsite and running wild.
Oh god, I think this is the worst question. I don’t really know if I have “fashion sense” (lol). I like being comfy so am often in active wear or like sports luxe clothing. Otherwise if I have to narrow it down I would say my vibes are quite boho-y/ minimalistic.
Bailing out of social plans (sorry if I’ve ever done this to you – it’s not personal). I say yes to start with and then when it comes to it the idea makes me feel sick and to be honest I’m a baby grandma and would prefer to stay at home. I told you I was honest!
Phew! Done! That wasn’t too bad/ painful. There you go you have a little insight into my life and the workings of my brain with these 20 Random Facts About Me. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and getting to know me a little better, it was kind of fun to share more of my life and I actually quite enjoyed answering these questions.
